We stayed here recently for one night as we were passing through on the 395. Hotel is fine and our room was basic and clean. Exactly what we expected for a small, older motel. Pool is small but pool area was clean and looked inviting. The motel is on the north end of town but still close enough to walk... More

We stayed there this past weekend 7/4/14, we were there to enjoy the Whitney trails. There was mold on the shower curtain, the vent in the bathroom did not have a cover, there was not a drain/strainer in the bathroom sink and you could see the debris/residue/waste and gunk and it would come out into the sink while the water...

We stopped here on our way home from Yosemite, and it was the first motel in a series along the strip. For $88 we got a $45 room at best. The room was dirty: tub surround had mold growing on the grout. There were only 5 tissues in the tissue box with no spares, no ice machine on the property,... More

As a woman traveling solo after leaving Reno I decided to spend the night in Lone Pine. As I had never been there & very tired I stopped at Mt. Whitney Hotel as the sign caught my attention. A lady came out from the back room. I inquired about a single smoking room. She said she had one for $78.... More

Excellent location, rooms adequate and clean, nice shower and drink facilities just about what you would expect for $50 , guy in charge pleasant enough as was his wife. This is a budget motel that offers competitive rates you will not get 5 star facilities but could you really expect more for your well earned cash. I would recommend.

"Welcomed" by a rather unfriendly motel owner who kept looking out the window at my car to see my partner Craig in the drivers seat. It was kind of obvious she disapproved. Regardless, we booked a king size bed and were given a room off the side. The room was large, but not in good shape. Carpets appeared dirty, half... More

We stayed just one night and had no complaints about anything. We had a room in the rear annex; it was large, with a large flat screen TV that was hung on the wall (Which I like), and well-placed relative to the bed. There was also in room coffee and an icy cold refrigerator, as well as a small microwave,... More

The Mt. Whitney is a small, old-fashioned mom & pop place near the north end of Main Street (Hwy 395) with a classic neon sign. This stretch of street and the neon sign make a quick appearance near the beginning of the recent movie “Desert Son,” if you don’t blink (you may need to pause and back up to see... More

A relatively clean room with enough bed space. Nothing more, nothing less. The smallest pool ever, with lots of dead insects in it. Our travel companions payed slightly more to stay at the Comfort Inn, and it seemed like they got more value for money.
